In brief: Little risk
there is no increase in epilepsy risk after a single febrile seizure.
Even with multiple simple febrile seizures the risk goes from 1/2 to 1 percent.

In brief: Not typically
Febrile sz do not increase the risk of non febrile seizures unless they last longer than 5 minutes.
If a febrile sz is followed by a non febrile seizure, obviously that child needs to be seen by a neurologist for further evaluation.
